Get Penelope Cruz's look!  

3 comentarios

Last week I asked many people about this topic. Who would you like to see in this section? And many people answered: Penelope Cruz!
Well, as a fellow Spaniard =) I have to recognize that life has treated her well. She made it big in Hollywood, but she is also one fashionable woman! Very stylish in any place: at the Oscars with a nice dress that fits her figure, or in her everyday life. If you take a look at some of her photos, you will see that in a regular day she is pretty much a tshirt and jeans girl, but still in a fashionable way.
Basically, her style is simple and clean.

Keep reading and you will see some clothing and makeup tips to look like her ! =)

I think Penelope (or Pe, as we call her in Spain), would like these items I found in Etsy:


Sellers, from left to right, top to bottom, are (link to the item): Brownies, bystephanie, CHERRYPICKVINTAGE, spiffingjewelry, valhallabrooklyn, Georgeaccessories, stephaniemadesh, Sylviajewelry, Theothersister, liinok, kerrihale, santokivintage, Alkamessa, everythingok, enso, ArtMind, JessicaRoseCouture, stephaniemadesh, Lametamorphose, MinnaK

I tried to mix everyday items with some stunning red carpet dresses =) I hope you like them!

This time I could not find a video on how to wear Pe's makeup or get her hairdo. Probably because her hairdo is pretty normal.

And finally, some makeup tips.

Penelope's makeup always focuses on her eyes, as she usually wears a classy smokey-eye look.

Steps to get her look:
  1. Put on a light coating of foundation.
  2. Use navy blue eyeliner and eye shadow. Line the entire top and bottom lids first, then apply the navy blue eye shadow over the eyeliner.
    • OR : Apply black eyeliner pencil, making a generous line above the entire upper lash line. (If your lids are not as large as Penelope's, make a slightly narrower line.) Using a cotton bud, sponge applicator or your finger, gently smudge the line. Next apply liner inside the lower lash line, and then apply it underneath the outer third of the lower lash line
  3. Curl lashes by crimping them at the bottom, middle and ends of the lashes. Apply mascara on the upper lids. Brush eyebrows up.
  4. Dust bronzer on your cheeks.
  5. Add a tinted lip gloss rather than a lipstick. Choose a color that is most similar to your natural lip color.
  6. Finish the Penelope Cruz look with a light dusting of shimmery powder all over the face.

Well, I hope you liked this post =) And if you would like to see a "get the look of" post of someone else, please let me know! I need cool-fashionable people to portrait :)
